One Rice Thousand Gold: A Remixed Story by Rachel

This is a story Rachel (age 6) typed tonight all by herself on our family netbook. We printed it on our home printer, and then she read it aloud. I recorded her oral reading using the iPadio application on my iPhone, which created this embeddable audio version. Rachel based her story on the Chinese fable, “One Rice Thousand Gold.”
